Steps will be taken to ensure children are equipped with the necessary digital skills and tools to enjoy the internet.
The European Commission (EC) observed the web may not have been created for kids, but 75 per cent of them use it and so they need to learn how to stay safe while logged on.
In order to address this situation, the EC is putting a plan in place that will enhance educational online content for children.
Vice-president of the body Neelie Kroes said: "Kids need simple, transparent and consistent internet tools and the knowledge and skills to use them."
She added the programme will bring youngsters together to ensure they get the protection they are entitled to.
A number of action groups are to be created across the continent to make sure the internet becomes a safer and better place for kids.
European Commissioner for Home Affairs Cecilia Malmstrom observed the advent of the digital age has seen younger generations become the most active group online.
